This morning I'm thinking about how the first week of October is over and I wish for time to slow down, so I can savor this color packed month. When I was in the kitchen cooking, I glanced out my window and took in the the falling leaves and the sky line that is brighter by each day. Last weekend was the end of traveling and busy plans which is good because I'm tired!
After catching up on necessary tasks around the house, paperwork that was begging for attention, I have carved out some much needed slowing down time to do whatever my little heart desires. My priorities are knitting, reading and taking the camera outside for some nature observations. I've written a list of outings that are local that would be fun to do, but aren't critical.
Our meals have shifted slowly this past week. Gone are the massive salads and we've herald in the first chili of the season. My mind is spinning with slow cooked warm meals to add to the menu rotation. Of course there's a list for that :) We've turned on the heat (yay) and Frodo is in a snuggly mood each morning-now I know autumn is upon us.
The pumpkins in the above photo were made by my mom many many years ago. Beginning in September I decorate the house for fall and pull these out and I'm reminded of her and her creative spirit.
Have a wonderful weekend? Any plans?
